House Judiciary Committee members released the transcript of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony in front of the committee last year and it contained several major revelations.
One of the biggest revelations was that Page, who was having an affair with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok, said that the infamous “insurance policy” text message was referring to the Russia investigation.
“During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text — and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at ‘total breakneck speed’ and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn’t be elected anyway,” Fox News reported. “Further, she confirmed investigators only had a ‘paucity’ of evidence at the start.”
Page and Strzok, who both hated then-candidate Donald Trump and were pro-Hillary Clinton, were involved in the FBI’s initial counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.
